Describe the featured project.

 

 

This Sand Section Manhattan Beach renovation was so fun for us because the homeowners have unique style and taste (which is our fave!). We love that our clients aren’t “cookie-cutter,” as we enjoy stretching our capacities for designing in new styles with every single project. These clients really liked the Spanish style of their home and wanted to emulate that in the furnishings and cabinetry, while keeping all updates fresh and contemporary. The special details on the kitchen cabinets, the fun Moorish patterns used in the breakfast nook and the onyx pendants chandelier all play so nicely with the freshly opened space and updates. They wanted a very traditional feel in the bedroom but a more whimsical, beachy contemporary in the game rooms. The home still has a very cohesive feel while allowing all the different aspects of our client to shine in its design. The result is an updated home that is uniquely them; we were delighted to be an integral part of that.


What are some Interesting requests you’ve received from clients?

A gentleman wanted a gun safe hidden behind his television. A mother brought her teenage daughter to us to get a custom round bed in a cheetah print fabric. Someone seriously considered how to get a fire pole installed in their new construction home. And just recently, some clients building a 2-on-a-lot in the Hermosa Sand Section wanted us to make a garage door in lieu of LaCantina accordion doors in their living room … and we are ALL about it. So stay tuned …


Describe your dream backyard.

A Sand Section verdant jungle paradise with a green mosaic tile-bottomed pool and rock enclave that houses a slide. There’s also a high dive and a low dive. The saltwater hot tub also has green tile bottom so it feels like you’re in a natural hot springs as you soak the day away. Privacy trees line all sides of the ¼-acre lot so one can soak sans clothing at any time. There are multiple fruit trees in the back of the property and at least two dogs, two cats and a pair of miniature donkeys roaming the meticulously kept landscaping. And maybe a potbellied pig too. There’s a mini-amphitheater for no more than 100 of your dearest friends to enjoy a private concert or movie, an awesome BBQ and multiple cabanas. Side note: This might not be possible.
